Michael Hall Wines Flaxman's Valley Syrah 2015
'The Naimanya vineyard sits high in the tiny sub-region of Flaxman's Valley, on soils of sandy loam, gravel and quartz over clay. At 520m elevation it is one of the highest Shiraz vineyards in South Australia. High winter rainfall, followed by a cool spring and summer delivered gradual ripening and a late harvest. Hand picked on 20th March, 85% destemmed to open fermenter, 15% whole bunch to closed puncheon with 40 days maceration. Matured in French oak (10% new) for 20 months. No fining or filtration.'
